Tracking of NFS artifacts
let me begin a thread tracking issues with NFS, a package
collection in need for better examination, as we were told
a few days ago.
A fresh install including "File server" immediate uncovered these:
* "mountd" fails to start since "/etc/exports" is empty.
The package should really install a file even if it only
contains comments. Touch said file, and rebooting, will
let "mountd" be started as is expected.
* "rpcbind" produces an error, because "/var/run/rpcbind/rpcbind.xdr"
is not present. I am inconclusive as to the cause would be that
"/run/rpcbind/" is never created in that tmpfs, or whether there
ought to be some template "rpcbind.xdr" inserted in place by
the init script.
This could be related to the fact that at booting time
the following sequence appear:
Starting ZFS subsystem
mount: /lib/init/rw: unknown special file or file system
mount: /tmp: unknown special file or file system
Filesystem type 'zfs' is not supported. Skipping mount
dito 'linprocfs' [second time!]
Activating lvm and md swap.
Then file systems get inserted as usual.
* Each of "nfsd" and "rpc.statd" uses more that twenty seconds
to stop at reboot or halt.
